DIY project that we cant finish. Redid interior built in and threw out old doors. Tried to fit new ones and struggled (coudn't circ saw a straight line for the track + standard door may be too thick). Have removed the old track from the bottom. Track at the top is still there

Now we need 2 sliding doors fitted properly (mindful of small awning too). Happy for new tracks to be installed or have the new doors fit the old tracks (whatever works better).

The doors we brought previously were the right height and width. See measurements and photos.

Keen to get this done asap.

Hi mate, I repair built-in wardrobes but being a DIY job I'm hesitant to offer as I'm worried about what I'll find. Could you provide some photos? Pics of the doors and the actual built in might be helpful. Thanks mate

Well there was a bottom track too , since removed and the doors we fitted (shown in the photos) were the right height and width and they did slide. Albeit not smoothly.

Overall yes new doors likely need to be part of this. We have replacements guides too.

Just trying to explain the task.
Micheal I've looked at all the pics and your description to be honest mate I don't want to touch it I'm going to leave it alone. Those guides and wheels are all wrong and they are Bunnings stuff. the doors are wrong. You need completely different doors and completely different tracks and completely different wheels and they all need to be customised. I reckon it would be cheaper in the long term to call out a wardrobe builder and get him to do it. The cost for anyone to do all the above is over $600. If any handyman type of guy gets these things going for you they will last 1 week before your back to the drawing board. You simply cannot make this combo work or last
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I dissagree but thanks for detailed response
I can do this for you as I also did my own built in wardrobe I also live near you shall I come now
We are out this afternoon my friend but Monday or next Saturday work well. Check out the photos.
Pls send the pics so I quote the correctly
